How We Live and Work Greener
It’s easy being green(er), when you’re committed to doing the right things
And Bel Red is committed to doing our part to save energy and protect our environment. We are taking steps to make a real difference in our homes, neighborhoods, and in the world every day.
We offer a full range of environmentally friendly products, including:
- High-efficiency furnaces
- Ultra-efficient heat pumps, including geothermal and ductless systems
- Hybrid, tankless and solar water heaters
- Gas fireplace inserts
- Programmable thermostats
We take concrete steps every day to reuse, to reduce and recycle and make a real difference for our environment.
Plus a wide range of other products that can substantially reduce your home’s energy consumption and your carbon footprint. These are products that save resources, energy and money.
Beyond the products we carry today, we are always looking for new solutions that can improve your home’s efficiency, comfort, health and safety.
From our Comfort Guard Program to our Home Energy and Safety Assessment, we feature a wide range of services designed to help you improve and maintain the efficiency of your home.
Recycling & Reclaiming
We want to ensure that the old, inefficient products we remove from your home do not end up in a landfill. All materials from furnaces, air conditioners, heat pumps and plumbing we replace are sent to local recycling centers to be reused in new products:
- Refrigerant oil
We also make sure that old mercury thermostats are safely processed, and the hazardous materials they contain are disposed of properly. And when we need to remove refrigerant from an air conditioning system, it’s safely captured so that it doesn’t escape into the atmosphere.
Reducing fuel consumption is a priority for us. In the future, we’re looking toward new technologies to help reduce our fuel use while we lower carbon emissions. Today, we work hard to purchase the most fuel-efficient vehicles available that will meet our needs.
While vehicles are in our fleet, we maximize their fuel efficiency through:
- Regular oil changes
- Proper tire inflation
We route all of our vehicles to minimize the miles we drive every year, while still enabling us to meet the needs of our customers. We even monitor our vehicles’ speeds through GPS systems to maximize mileage!
In designing our offices, we took many measures to reduce energy consumption and waste. Naturally, we started with the heating and cooling systems by installing the most efficient choices. Beyond this, all of our lighting use either high-efficiency fluorescent fixtures or compact fluorescent bulbs. Exterior glass is coated to conserve energy and reduce summer air conditioning demand. We added foam insulation in the ceiling to further reduce energy loss. We even installed low-flow toilets to conserve water.
We’re doing our part to save energy and protect the environment. And with our products, services and programs, we’re making it easier for you to do the same.
